Glenville House (Adults Only)
Ranked #3 of 107 Windermere B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 October 2013

My wife and I have just got back from spending three fabulous nights at Glenville House. From the first moment to the last I cannot fault Pete and Jayne or their fabulous B&B.
Firstly, the rooms were spotlessly clean, well decorated and with lovely soft beds and thick duvets. The breakfasts were fantastic and the attitide of Pete and Jayne was a joy.
However,the difference between this stay and so many others was the small details. Complimentary home made cakes in the room every day, free use of fridge in the room, free cakes at reception, the use of a hotel umbrella in-case you forgot your own (we had!)
Wonderful stuff. If you are going to the Lake District stay here.....it'll be a lot better than most hotels.

We have just returned from spending our wedding anniversary at Glenville House... the first thing to comment on is the welcome we received from Pete, we have never been made to feel so welcome. The room was superior double and was just beautiful, the furnishings were gorgeous and the special touches were lovely, fresh flowers in the room, homemade biscuits and a treat for our anniversary which was much appreciated, thank you! The en-suite was bright and spotlessly clean. The breakfast prepared by Jayne was really lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Jayne makes the complimentary cakes which are in reception, we had a piece of the chocolate cake which was to die for, and the homemade jam for breakfast too... very clever lady. Pete and Jayne are the perfect hosts and get everything so right, we also met Lynn who was just as lovely. Thank you so much for making our anniversary weekend special and we will definitely be returning and recommending you to everyone who will listen. It was great to meet you all.

We have just got back from a lovely anniversary weekend at Glenville House. It was our first time staying in a B&B and was surprised that it was nicer than most hotels I've stayed in! The room was very quiet, clean, beautifully furnished and the bed was huge and so comfy! It was all the personal touches that made the trip so special too. Homemade cakes and biscuits in the foyer and biscuits in the room were lovely, and Pete was such a welcoming, friendly host, and recommended some lovely pubs in the area. We would both love to come back (maybe when the weather is a bit nicer?!) and will also recommend Glenville House to all our friends.

Me and my partner just got back from an excellent 3 nights here for my 25th birthday. From the moment we walked in Peter greeted us in such a friendly manner and I had a lovely surprise of a card and some chocolates. Lovely clean rooms and the breakfast is amazing :) Jayne is a wonderful cook, thankyou for the brownies that you gave us for the journey home :) We will definitely be back to stay in the new year. Thanks Charlotte and Rich :)

What a fantastic choice of accommodation to celebrate my hubby's 50th. We were wowed by the standard of Glenville House, it is so beautiful. Our room is amazing with all the little extras which make it even more special. We arrived to a birthday card and chocolates just because I mentioned it was a birth day weekend. The food was delicious and catered well for my vegetarian requirements. Will definitely stay again on our next visit to the Lakes.

We stayed for 2 nights and wished we could of stayed longer.The bedroom was the best we have stayed in, breakfast was fantastic, and the homemade jams and biscuits were wonderful, jayne kindly gave me her recipe for the biscuits, which were put into our room each day. Jayne and Peter were lovely, always had a smile. We will hopefully be going back next september, if jayne and peter have any rooms left.
Thanks jayne and peter for such a wonderful stay.x

We spent 3 nights at Glenville House, a fantastic B&B. Comfortable, stylish room, excellent shower. Delicious breakfast and we loved the personal touches of homemade cakes in the entrance hall and homemade biscuits in the bedroom.
Friendly owner, helpful with things to do around the lakes.
